Implementing Kanban for Successful Project Management Webinar
Is your organization considering moving to Agile project management training, but is not ready to implement the extreme organizational changes as required by Scrum methodology?
Are you happy with the quality of your development, but you just need to deliver your products more frequently?
If you said yes to either of these questions, then you should consider learning more about Kanban training.
Kanban is an evolutionary (not revolutionary) approach to becoming more Agile. Some of the key practices of Agile that support this approach are as follows:
Focus on small, incremental changes
Keep those processes that are working
Respect the existing roles, processes and titles
Kanban for software development and project management is a Lean approach. Kanban was originally developed to remove waste from manufacturing processes. This same approach is being used in software development to eliminate waste, improve productivity and support continuous delivery of value driven software to your customer. Kanban uses some simple techniques of Kanban boards where you can see product progress as at glance, work-in-progress (WIP) limits to manage your workflow and identify and remove bottlenecks, and lastly it provides transparency into how efficient your existing processes are by capturing cycle’s times for every requirement created by your customer.
Why Should You Attend
The benefit of Kanban is that it provides complete transparency into your product lifecycle. This allows you to continuously improve and focus on only those steps in your process that are value-driven while at the same time introducing organizational change in a deliberate and incremental approach.
